Q&A: Can I Use Splenda During Pregnancy?

Can I use Splenda (sucralose) during pregnancy?

Yes, sucralose is just fine. The FDA says it's completely safe for pregnant women to consume. You can also have aspartame (NutraSweet or Equal Classic). The sweetener you should avoid is saccharin, which hasn't been proven safe, since it can cross the placenta, and doctors don't know exactly what kind of effect it has on a fetus.
